When it comes to style and expression, shade perennials are a must for every yard. After establishing a new space with tall plants and trees, shade perennials provide accents and fill in details to ultimately create an inviting space. The following tips show off how to take advantage of these versatile and diverse plants.
Shade Perennials Work Well As Yard Borders
It's not always easy to fill out a yard with cohesive decoration. Indeed, more giant trees and plants go a long way in establishing a yard's atmosphere and sense of space, but sometimes something is missing. That's why shade perennials work well in a yard's corners and borders.
Window Boxes Work Well With Shade Perennials
For windows in the shade, particularly on the north side of the house, these plants can quickly bring in some stylish charm. While a dainty and feminine perennial may pair well with a tiny home, it's also possible to evoke the sophisticated appeal of a manor with an ideal choice. No matter the home's style, there are shade perennials available to create the perfect look.
Another perfect location for shade perennials is at the base of a tree. One popular trend includes creating a circle 6 to 10 feet in diameter at the bottom of a tree and lining it in decorative brick or stone. Then, it becomes easy to fill the space with various shade perennials. By combining shorter and taller plants and playing with contrast, creativity is endless.
Shaded perennials make an excellent backdrop, especially when lining the path to the front door. One option includes edging a gravel path with various larger stones and planting perennials beyond that path. Another option merely involves creating an organic, curving path from negative space and allowing the plants to define the road directly. Either way, guests and passersby alike will surely admire any yard with a beautiful layout.
